    For just over 100 euros per person 7 in our group. No candy no gift no free photos no free post card to post in the post office, dinner wasn’t with any elves. No magical experience for the kids. Our guide was lovely though I just don’t know where the money went. Shame really.

    Good experience over all, Claudia our guide was brilliant. There is a long wait for Santa and you have to pay extra for a present for the kids at €28 each and then pay a further €35 for a picture( that's the cheapest option) which adds up. When we went in to Santa he looked fab in fairness but my youngest was surprised he didn't know her name, why they can't put the kids names on the tags they get going in if they are getting a presents I don't know it would make it more authentic if he knew their names. There is a buffet meal included and a tour around the artic circle shops and post office.

    A friendly guide, Claudia with a warm smile picked us up on time; it was a perfect visit to Santa's village there onwards; meeting and sitting and chatting with Santa was magical as was meeting and feeding the reindeers! Claudia made everything seamless and easy; visit to post office, sending letters to the loved ones, crossing the arctic circle or enjoying a delicious lunch - she patiently photographed everything and made it a very memorable experience for us. Thank you
